A People's Conference

Saturday 12 February 2011
@ Friends Meeting House,
Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ

This Con-Dem coalition aims to roll back the welfare state, slash our living standards, attack our pensions and to drive up unemployment. We need to respond with protests, direct action and strikes.

At the People’s Convention on Saturday 12 February we want to discuss how we can do just that. We also want to examine alternatives to austerity – where the rich and the corporations pay for a crisis they caused.

Speakers include:

Diane Abbot MP

Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary

Tony Kearns CWU senior deputy General Secretary

Jane Loftus CWU President

Alan Whittaker, president of UCU

Jimmy Kelly, Head of UNITE in Ireland

Steve Hart, London and South East regional secretary of Unite

Jeremy Corbyn MP

Andrej Hunko, Die Linke MP (Germany)

Katy Clark MP

John McDonnell MP

Representative of FIOM (Italian metal Workers Federation)

Captain SKA, producer of the hugely popular ‘Liar Liar‘ YouTube hit

Workshops include:

* Organising claimants against benefit cuts

* Disabled people – at the forefront of resistance Sponsored by Disabled People Against the Cuts

* Students – at the forefront of struggle Sponsored by National Campaign Against Cuts & Fees and Education Activists Network

* How trades councils can build resistance

* Organising a local anti-cuts campaign

* NHS in crisis Sponsored by Keep Our NHS Public

* Housing Emergency Sponsored by Defend Council Housing

* Can the unions stop the ConDems?

* One million climate jobs now

* Organising migrant and precarious workers

* Alternatives to Austerity
